Keep up with the Park People


Welcome to the Park People!

The Park People believe that public parks enrich our lives and communities. Whether one is biking along a path, pushing a child in a swing, or merely cherishing a view, our daily lives benefit from our park experiences. They enhance our quality of life. For over thirty years, The Park People of Milwaukee County, Inc. (TPP), a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, has educated and involved the public in decisions concerning our parks through our mission: Citizen Stewardship of Milwaukee County Parks. Our members have raised millions of dollars for public projects including historical preservation, public art restoration, parks improvements and tree planting.  To find out more about what we do click here.
